By 2035, the U.S population of adults over the age of 65 are projected to outnumber children. Sadly, 1 in 10 adults over age 60 will experience some form abuse.

This monograph-based CE activity is designed and approved for 2.0 contact hour of continuing education in the topic of Elder Abuse and Geriatric care.
